#6 of 57 hotels in Heraklion
Travelers' Choice
The dramatic views of the Venetian fortress at the old city harbor of Heraklion, and the wonder-filled waves of the Cretan Sea, are among the most photographed tourist attractions on Crete island. Not many visitors can enjoy the full panoramic grandeur of these contemplative landscapes, the way our guests at Lato Boutique Hotel can.Standing for more than 35 years above the marina, our hotel operates 365 days a year without interruptions. Famous for authentic Cretan hospitality, Lato Boutique Hotel is the most welcoming establishment in this part of the city, a magnet for romantic couples, but also for families, and business travelers. Being at the center of the old Heraklion town, the peaceful and colorful central market is only a few steps away. The museums, the Venetian harbor with the fishing boats and the yacht marina, the parks, the gardens, the city cafes and all ancient Heraklion lays at the foot of our front doorstep, your front doorstep.

Coming from California I was prepared, but the Lato has taken extra care in their Covid measures. Everything is cleaned quickly, thoroughly, and often. The railings, the elevator, the doors and rooms. For the (fantastic and generous) buffet they are careful in seating and how many can be in buffet area at a time. They are constantly ceaning the tables and buffet area. Of course this is a real Cretan hotel so the welcome is sincere! The restaurant's not open yet, but there are plenty of options available, plus they are offering room service. The staff here are always warm and professional and kind. I am sure that other hotels are taking precautions too, but I have seen the ones at the Lato in person.

Hotel's Favorite
Myself, my partner and our parents stayed here just for one night, as we had to take an earlier flight into Crete due to Covid-19. We arrived pretty late at the hotel (around 10:45pm), but the lady at reception had a big smile on her face and was very welcoming. The check in process took less than 5 minutes and was nice and easy. The rooms were very pleasant - good strong aircon, very comfy beds and nice bathroom. We had breakfast in the morning and there was a good selection of meats, cheeses, cooked items, cereal, pastries, fruit, teas and juices. We had to check out of the room by 11am, however there was a room next to reception where we were able to store our bags until our hire car was ready to take us onto the next place. This allowed us to explore the city a little before heading off. Location wise it was great, very short walk to local shops and tavernas and city life. The hotel was perfect for just one night for us, but we could have easily stayed there for a little while longer!

Lovely hotel overlooking the Venetian harbour. Close to everything in the old town. Kind & helpful staff. Really good breakfast buffet with Greek & European options. Take a suite with the views if you can, it’s worth the extra as some rooms will just face the road. 100% recommended for a pleasant stay in old Heraklion.

In the midst of the coronavirus panic, my husband and I decided to travel to Crete and Lato was one of the few hotels open at the time. It lived up to my expectations of superb service and, most importantly safety during the pandemic. The staff was friendly and accommodating with extremely helpful suggestions. Room was scrupulously clean. We stayed in a sea view superior room on the 3rd floor. Balcony was small but overlooking the Venetian old port with an amazing view and breathtaking sunset. We loved the safe way continental breakfast was prepared with everything, including delicious Greek dairy and honey topped products, individually wrapped. Dinner at the rooftop restaurant was a highlight. Didn’t know whether I should look at the food or the view. It’s a lovely property and I highly recommend Lato Boutique Hotel and look forward to returning.
